Hey guys,
i have a HP dv6-3205tu windows 7 64bit laptop that got a virus on it and i had to remove the hdd to get rid of the virus, when i put the hdd back in it all boots up fine but when i connect an ethernet cable to my laptop i get the yellow triangle on the connection icon, but when i connect via a wireless network i dont get the issue it goes through fine.
i have tried uninstalling the driver and installing th latest version from HP's website but i have had no luck with the new driver

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated

Hi joef123 - there is definitely no static IP or DNS settings.. all addressing is obtained dynamically!

Given what you had to do, consider running a repair install from the Windows 7 DVD. Do backup the system first. The following Seven Forums link describes the process.

look in device manager - is the network card installed without errors?
if no lan card shows - it can be disabled in the bios

Launch services.msc and make sure these services are started and set it automatic.

Network connected device auto setup
Network connections
Network list service
Wired Auto Config.


Restart and check
